Will Super Six be the saviour or slayer of club rugby?

The year ahead promises to be an interesting one for rugby. The best two teams in world rugby will meet for the first time since 2014 and either New Zealand or England will get a huge boost one year out from the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

Focused Melrose refuse to take eyes off the prize

Since the opening day of the BT Premiership season, the key question has been can anyone beat Melrose? Every week so far, the answer has been a resounding no.

Glasgow Hawks 17-34 Melrose: Bouquet of a dozen for Rose

The Melrose machine motors on. This was their 12th league outing of the season, and their 12th bonus-point win. It was by no means the easiest victory of the campaign for the Greenyards club, but once they got a pre-half-time wobble out of the way they were well worthy of the five points.

Glasgow Hawks 29 - 19 Hawick: Hawks flutter to deceive

In a strange sort of way, the losing side will have come away from this match feeling the more positive of the two teams, having recovered some sense of pride with a battling performance after last week’s humiliating capitulation to Heriot’s.

Ayr 18 - 28 Glasgow Hawks: Champions defeated

A fine disregard for reputations was on display on a sunny Saturday afternoon at Millbrae as a precocious Glasgow Hawks side secured their club’s first victory in South Ayrshire since December 2005 by beating their esteemed hosts at their own game.

Scrums give Hawks the winning edge over Marr in thriller

If it produces scintillating rugby like this, instead of syphoning-off six clubs into a semi-professional league, the SRU should just install a 4G pitch at every BT Premiership club and let the guys get on with it.
